Traffic jam in Kolkata, West Bengal, India

This man takes sleeping to the extreme! And no…he is not dead, as some people have suggested. I took this a few years ago in Kolkata, West Bengal, India. This man was rolling around sitting up, lying down and generally trying to get comfortable in the non-moving traffic in the fume filled streets….I can’t remember what stage of that trying-to-get-comfortable process that he was in when I took this…I just know that he was very determined to relax.

Kolkata is a very busy and lively place..and very camera friendly…..most people are happy to have their photo taken, and there is always a cheap place to eat that you can dive into whenever you get tired from walking around, which pretty much makes it perfect for taking photographs!
